How would you like your photography blog or website to have a name like street.photography or may be event.photography ? You would love that, wouldn’t you ?!? Who wouldn’t love to have a website with a domain name that makes one stand out in the .com jungle.
Then again by now you are probably groaning in disgust because you know that is not possible. But, don’t worry ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) are about to release fourteen new generic domains which includes .photography. So now February on-wards you make your precious photography blog or website more genre specific.
That’s not all, you can even register your domain name with the new generic domains prior to their release. GoDaddy is offering pre-registration. All you need to do is go to http://www.godaddy.com/newdomains and pre-register the domain of your dreams. You can also opt for the Priority Pre Registration offered by GoDaddy but that is obviously going to lighten your pocket by quite a bit.
However please be aware that neither Pre Registration or Priority Pre Registration guarantees that you will be ultimately getting the domain when the new generic domains are released. Also in case of Pre Registration you shall be refunded the registration fees in case you fail to get the domain name you pre registered; however no such refunds are applicable for Priority Pre Registation. Please read up the FAQs on GoDaddy’s website very carefully before registering.
Two other registrars offering domain name registration with the new about to be released generic domains are name.com and Network Solutions.
So what are you waiting for ? Go out there and get the domain of your choice now.
